Abstract:Sampling techniques is a common topic in many areas of Education. For example, courses about sampling can be found in Economic, Psychology, Sociology, etc. In particular, different subjects in the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Granada include contents about this topic. When dealing with sampling techniques, it is important that students can solve themselves many exercises. If the same exercises are proposed, students can copy the solutions from other students. In addition, if exercises with different data are proposed, the teacher has the problem of checking many sets of exercises. Using the software R, a teaching tool that generates individual exercises is proposed. The main advantage of this tool is that students can check themselves the solutions, and a personal code is shown to the students when the whole sets of exercises is correctly solved. This implies that the teacher only needs to check the different codes from the students in order to check a particular set of exercises, which considerably reduces the time spent on correcting sets of exercises.
